the discussion that the school would be encouraged by us to continue to talk to the neighbors and support the institutional master plan with a caveat that we would like to at least continue to talk to each other. commissioner antonini: i think this institutional master plan is very thorough and complete. while there has been a discussion about general parking conditions in this area of the city, i do not think it really involves the school. as has been mentioned, very few if any of the faculty or students are using cars, and they seem to be accommodated. even with the increased attendance, i do not see that as being an issue here. it certainly is always good to have discussions. but i feel comfortable with the informational master plan. hopefully, neighbors can get together and deal with the general problems that exist in the neighborhood, if there are some. commissioner borden: i think this is more of an anti-gay issue. -- more of an mta issue. if only two out of 10 students drive, that is better than most employers and most places here in the city. i would not put the burden on

commercial district in which only 1000 square feet are being used for commercial space. this project feels more in line with a residential development than a neighborhood commercial development in the fact that less than 10% of the space is being used for commercial space and the rest is being used for essential space. the analogy that came to my mind is that had houses are not considered part of an existing building, and yet, they are allowed to take up 10% of a rough area. here you have a neighborhood commercial development, in which commercial space is less than 10%. the highest and best use for this project we feel would be that the total ground-floor be used for commercial space and other spaces be used accordingly. but in regards to revenue, we look at this project and whether it would be better for the city to generate revenue in its current state or in its proposed state, and we found that the parking tax staying at 25% of gross revenue, the its current state generates 5% more revenue than is proposed -- and its proposed project, and also the fact that the proposed pr
